Water changes for Ben are play time. He loves playing as close to the cup I dip the water out with, and he does swim into the cup. So I have to really watch before I empty the cup in the bucket. (like throwing the baby out with the bath) They have so many things they express to us. There are times I wonder if I have gone round the bend, because I know exactly what he wants and why he does what he does.
He will tell me about things that are not right in his tank. like if one of the snails uproots a plant or knocks the thermometer off the side of the tank and it's floating. Ben will zoom around the front to get my attention and then swim to what is out of place. ( and the look he gives me if I don't catch it right away, is like look here stupid). All my betta have their ways and I can tell their likes, and dislikes, and if they are scared of something.
I guess it's the time I spend watching them and learning from them.
